What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
We return 9 starters but will be learning a new offense and will need the defense to keep us in the game early in the season. We need to be able to throw the ball consistently and control the LOS. We will also need some of the younger players to step up and play.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
We return 9 starters on defense. Some positions may have changed but they are a seasoned group who will need to step up early in the season. Consistency and stopping teams on 3rd down will be a focus.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
This group of seniors is now on their 3rd head coach in 4 years. They could have packed it up but they are doing a great job of laying a solid foundation and they have worked extremely hard in the offseason. We challenged them with coming in early for workouts and added speed training into it the mix. Every player improved in the offseason. Now we must make that same change and commitment on the field. If we come together as a team and put the team first, play the next play, and play with energy, we have the opportunity to have a successful season.
